:55 in the morning president obama will enter the room along with first lady and their daughters, sasha and milia. the first lady's father gave that bible to his own mother in 1958 and the first lady's grandmother used it for many years and it's now been handed down to the next generation. so, it's very sentimental in their family. now, the chief justice will administer the 35-word oath. that's spelled out in article 2, section 1 of the constitution, as you know. >> hope he does a better job this time. >> oh, that man is never going to live it down. >> that was a mess up that will go down in history and the oath has to be taken before noon. as it's spelled out in the constitution, as well. now, you referred to the mess up last time. john roberts, the chief justice, made that mistake at the first inaugural. so, this, he had to do a redo. that redo last time was in the map room of the white house, not the blue room. this is the third time president obama will have taken the oath. the only president since fdr who has taken the oath four times. but fdr served four terms. >> he'll do it again tomorrow

grown up over the past four years. sasha and malia handle all the attention with real grace. and they'll spend their critical teen years inside the white house. our lisa sylvester is here with more on that. that would be tough for anyone, but it looks like they're going to be able to handle it, right, lisa? >> you are absolutely right, kate. we have certainly seen first children before, chelsea and the bush twins, but sasha and malia are considerably younger than the bush twins or chelsea was when their fathers were president. sasha was only in second grade when president obama was first elected, and malia will spend her formative years 10 through 18 living in the white house. that is quite a bubble to grow up in. >> malia obama and sasha obama. >> reporter: there aren't many 11 and 14-year-olds who walk out to a crowd of millions. but for malia and sasha, this is just a part of their lives. the girls have changed on the outside since the first inauguration, but more than that, there's a newfound grace and poise, and something else, a sense of normal. it shows in moments like these. m

them candidly for long time, teasing each other, laughing, sasha, the younger daughter taking pictures of her own parents, and them sort of mugging for her. her sister mugsing for some friend who she saw nearby. mom helping the girls with coats and bottles of water and iphones. dad getting caught checking his blackberry, and at one point teasing his girls. we do not usually see them this way. we see them usually in the hyper restrained dignity that is demanded of formal occasions and heads of state. for whatever reason, and i really hope they did not mind us seeing them this way. for a long stretch of time we got to seem them while the parade was going by, just hanging out and having a great time. being able to see the overlap between our regular humanity and the ceremony and celebration of greatness, of great office, of great achievement is always a moving thing. we're reminded that -- reminded of that in this city of monuments, monuments to human achievement that are rendered, of course, super human in their scale. we're reminded of this on days that are full of pageantry and ceremon

address to take place, we believe they are here at the white house right now. we have a good look at sasha obama, the youngest daugt e of the oobamas today after the swearing in took place and she looked at her dad and said, you didn't mess it up. he said i didn't, and it was a cute moment there. and there was a candlelight session that took place here, and tomorrow the ceremonies really pick up, and the first family will be 100 yards from where i am standing at the reviewing stand and they will be watching the parade as it passes and the inaugural planners will be hoping that the weather holds, because it is a spectacular day in the 60 compared to temperatures in the teens and windchills in the 40s a four years ago. and that is not the case here. the president and the family will walk over to the st. john's church and the church of the president as it is so often known for the first family before the inaugural swearing in and then the parade and then the ball, and ten of them four years ago, but just two, and still pretty good ones this time around. >> peter alexander from the white house
